[Haskell-cafe] C2HS issues on Hackage

Hi all,

I've written a Yaml library built on top of libyaml (the same C library at
the core of Python's yaml library). All is well on my local system and my
server; I'm currently using it in production. However, the build is failing
on Hackage with the following build log:

It seems that whichever version of C2HS is installed on the server does not
allow "type" (or perhaps other keywords?) to be used as C identifiers.
Unfortunately, "type" is the name of a field in a C struct I need to
integrate with. It's obviously not vital that I get it to compile on
hackage, but 1) I'm worried this is a sign of a bigger problem, and 2) it's
always nice to have the API documentation available online.

Any suggestions?
